    Would you like to be reminded of 5 minutes, every 5 minutes: introducing the Durr





    It's an interesting concept, you wear this & every 5 minutes it vibrates. Could you see yourself actually wearing this?



    This Watch Vibrates Every Five Minutes To Remind You To Make The Most Of Your Time
    This is the Durr, a new concept wristwatch that buzzes every five minutes, in an effort to jolt you into doing something with your day.
    Okay, that’s one, optimistic interpretation: Per the creators Theo Tveterås and Lars Marcus Vedeler, in the promotional video below, the Durr deals in our perception of time. Five minutes can occasionally feel like it flies by or crawls, depending on where you are in the queue at the DMV.
    Or, as the Durr website says, “With Durr you become aware of how your brain alters the length of a bus ride, how fast you finish a beer, how time flies by when you enjoy yourself, and drags along when you wait in line at the post office.”
    Five minutes is five minutes, however, a point that the Durr drives home with its regular vibrations. By perpetually pinging you every five minutes, the Durr will, at the very least, make you aware that life carries on at the same speed, no matter what you fill your time doing.
    The Durr won’t give you the precise time of day — indeed, the front plate is a solid color, rather than a clock face — but it will remind you of the ever-forward, linear nature of time itself.

    The Durr is $120 and all colors are currently sold out. You can sign up here to be notified when it comes back in stock. (Note: It will probably be more than five minutes.)

    A normal watch lets you know when 5 minutes has passed, and is more useful and stylish. Pass.

    It looks like a urinal cake.

    If it was a Fitbit-inspired design, athletic looking, well... still, no.

    It's only a matter of time before a WUS member puts it on a NATO strap.
    "This thing all things devours:
    Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
    Gnaws iron, bites steel,
    Grinds hard stones to meal;
    Slays king, ruins town,
    And beats high mountain down."
    J.R.R. Tolkien

    Agreed not worth the 120$ price tag

    I think it would drive me nuts. And it looks like a 20 cent plastic pillbox.

    Definitely, then start the clock before another WUS says he hates in on the NATO & brings up Rolex

    First thought that popped into my head. Followed by an obligatory face palm.

    First of all it's not a watch, it's missing the primary function of a watch which is to tell time.. so it's basically a urinal cake on a strap that vibrates every five minutes and is that ugly might be the stupidest thing I've seen in a really long time, and it's overpriced by $100.
